1862 Battle Of Glorieta Pass American Civil War New Mexico Western Campaign Nice For Sale
You are offerding on a VERY INTERESTING and INFORMATIVE HISTORY of the AMERICAN CIVIL WAR AS FOUGHT IN THE WEST entitled THE BATTLE OF GLORIETA: UNION VICTORY IN THE WEST by Don E. Alberts. Foreword by Donald S. Frazier. Published by Texas A&M University Press, 1998. 226 Pages.
FROM THE BOOK: On the morning of March 26, 1862, Confederate and Union armies met in Glorieta Pass in the southern Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico. A series of skirmishes, jockeying for position and a pitched battle on March 28 took a heave toll on both sides and left the Rebels under General Henry Hopkins Sibley apparently victorious over General John P. Sough's troops. However, the tide turned when Union soldiers under Col. John Chivington located the Confederate supply train and destroyed it. Without supplies, replacement arms, and ammunition, the Rebel troops could not maintain themselves against the still-strong Federal forces in the area. After a few additional skirmishes, the dispirited and disorganized Rebels straggled back to Texas. The Confederate quest for expansion into the Southwest was abandoned. THE BATTLE FOR GLORIETA: UNION VICTORY IN THE WEST offers the FIRST FULL, DETAILED, and ACCURATE history of this blind, groping struggle in the smoke filled Glorieta valley. The DEFINITIVE WORK on the battle, it includes not only the Confederate organization and approach to the key battle, but also that of the Federal military units as they organized within New Mexico and Colorado Territories. It incorporates for the first time under one cover all the known UNION PARTICIPANT ACCOUNTS, including several never before published. Based on his own research on the battlefield, Don E. Alberts also presents a thorough understanding of the deployment of troops and their actions.
